Performing nephrological research? Join PLAN!

Platform Researchers Nephrology connects enthusiastic PhD students, post-docs and other young researchers in the field of nephrology in The Netherlands.

PLAN aims to

  • Promote contact among researchers performing kidney-related research
  • Provide knowledge on nephrological research taking place in The Netherlands
  • Organize education for researchers about the kidney and kidney diseases

To achieve these goals, we organize all kinds of events. Our main events are the PLAN days; semi-annual symposia that are held alternately in each university medical center. During these free symposia, enthusiastic speakers from the hosting medical center present their own research to the public. This offers the perfect opportunity to get in touch with fellow researchers. We also organize presentations and workshops during the Dutch Kidney Foundation’s Winterschool and Dutch Nephrology Days, and of course drinks during congresses such as ERA-EDTA and ASN. To keep you updated, all events will be announced in our newsletter.

PLAN activities are generously supported by its parent organization, the Dutch Federation of Nephrology (NFN). For only €20 per year you can become an NFN-PLAN member and we can keep organizing our PLAN activities! To become a member of PLAN, you can send an email to:

The PLAN board consists of one representative from each University Medical Center. Here you can see the current board members. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us or visit our LinkedIn page: PLAN, Platform researchers Nephrology | LinkedIn
